So, what do you think?

Friends, I need your help. I need those creative, visionary minds I know are out there to tell me what you think.
This dress was my great aunts dress, probably from the 60's or so. It fits me, mostly. But the style it's in right now is not so good. The sleeves are see through, and the cowl neck doesn't work with me. I would also like to make it shorter, as it would go down to mid calf, or maybe even longer (my great aunt was tall too!).
If this were your dress you wanted to take to the tailor, what would you do? I would like to make this dress into something I could maybe wear to a ball (because eventually I'm sure we'll go to one) or even maybe wear to church. I need your thoughts people. Go into detail because I just can't see things well in my mind, especially when the original is right in front of me. I've got two more dresses I want to ask your opinion on, but lets just work on this one for now.

I think it's definitely going to be stunning no matter what you do with it! Nice color and fabric! How cool!

I'm so not a seamstress! Perhaps shorten to knee-length, make the sleeves short, and cut the neck into a square shape?
